The Education Ministry plans to cooperate with the Ministry of Education of South Korea to help train teachers in Cambodia, specifically in new teaching techniques and on the subjects of science and mathematics.
Speaking yesterday at a workshop in Phnom Penh on the teacher exchange program between Cambodia and South Korea, deputy director general of the Education Ministry Mok Sarom said that South Korean teachers would visit six schools in the capital to train Cambodian teachers.
The six schools range from elementary schools to high schools, he said, adding that the training would include new teaching techniques that were in line with international standards.
“The training provided by the South Korean teachers to our Cambodian teachers will improve the quality of our education system, which needs to improve,” he said.
Mr Sarom added the ministry was also considering to request more South Korean teachers to visit Cambodia in order to have them teach students in some provinces, including Siem Reap and Battambang.
The Cambodian and South Korean education ministries signed a memorandum of understanding with each other for exchanging teachers in 2017. The MoU lasts for five years.
